About us

Empower was set up by Michael Virgona in 1998. Our office brings together the combined talents of our project managers, designers, programmers, marketing and PR professionals and copywriters. We call on colleagues around Australia and Asia when their particular expertise is required. We love what we do and we believe it shows in our work.

While building websites has always been our focus, we branched out into copywriting and public relations in 2006. Not the most obvious step perhaps but when Michael’s wife Gail took maternity leave from her career in public relations and marketing, we decided to put her to work. Gail can develop copy for your site or provide public relations strategy should you need some help communicating with your customers both in the online and offline world.

Empower is a small web development business that has mastered the art of thinking big. We move easily between small and simple projects for start up businesses to more complicated projects for large companies who need their website to communicate with various audiences.

We are project managers, programmers, designers, marketers and PR professionals who’ve been working in industry since 1998 and we’ve picked up a few tricks along the way.

We don’t believe in just making websites look good. They have to work hard for your business and meet the expectations of internal and external customers.

Testimonials

What Our Clients Say

It's rare to find someone who completely understands how the media works like Gail Virgona. I have worked with Gail for nearly 10 years while I have edited several magazines and websites ‘ Country Style, Vogue Living and Homelife ‘ and she always delivers. Beautiful images and punchy press releases arrive in my inbox just when I need them. I trust Gail when she tells me something is exclusive and she never wastes my time - which means I will always take her call.

Victoria Carey, Editor in Chief, Country Style Magazine & Home Life magazine

I've worked with Gail for more than 10 years. She's always been a pleasure to deal with, is highly professional and very approachable. As a stylist often working on tight deadlines she has always been very helpful and quick to get back to me which has been invaluable. Her press releases for various clients always look fabulous and are a pleasure to receive.

Ruth Welsby, Freelance Stylist

Working in media, I need my PR contacts to be - reliable, efficient and above all quick to respond when I am on deadline and urgently need content - Gail Virgona does this and more, which is why I can depend on her each and every time.

Hande Renshaw, Homes Editor, Australian Women’s Weekly

I have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Gail over the last 8 years or so, she is passionate about the brands she represents and is a great ambassador for their product. She clearly understands what differentiates her clients from their competitors and is able to articulate this effectively. Most importantly Gail gets how media works, is responsive to requests and strikes the perfect balance of communicating regularly with relevant content and staying in touch.

Amber Mackay, Creative Director, InStyle Australia

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Gail. Gail is not only highly qualified but very experienced, modern and skilful in her delivery of PR solutions that met our brief and delivered results. She is a master of her profession, not to mention a delightful person and easy to work with. We would highly recommend Gail.

Laelie Berzon and Lisa Vincitorio, Directors, Something Beginning With

I had the pleasure of working with Gail for two years. She came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Her brief was to raise awareness of Ergoflex mattresses within the influencer sphere. She successfully achieved many references to our brand within articles and social media posts. Her results in a highly challenging market were instrumental in building our brand and growing our business. If I have the chance to work with Gail again I would not hesitate to engage her services.
